The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12 year cycle, each year of which is named after a different animal that imparts distinct characteristics to its year.  Many Chinese believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes, and the degree of success and amount of happiness they will have throughout their lifetime.  To learn about your Animal Sign, find the year of your birth among the list to the left.  (Note: The Chinese New Year doesn't officially begin until the 2nd New Moon after Winter Solstice. This means that even if you were born on a particular year, because everyone's birthday is different, you're animal sign, according to the Chinese calender, may in fact be the sign from the previous year.  This is only a technicality, which many people who use the modern international calender may or may not choose to ignore.)

Legend
According to Chinese legend, the twelve animals quarreled one day as to who was to head the cycle of years. The gods were asked to decide and they held a contest: whoever was to reach the opposite bank of the river would be first, and the rest of the animals would receive their years according to their finish. All the twelve animals gathered at the river bank and jumped in. Unknown to the ox, the rat had jumped upon his back. As the ox was about to jump ashore, the rat jumped off the ox's back, and won the race. The boar, who was very lazy, ended up last. That is why the rat is the first year of the animal cycle, the ox second, and the boar last.
